Letter to Gov. Granholm - shared on the web

Dear Guv:
Bob Dole spoke of the 'Democrat Party': its leaders often were/are not democratic. I do not see how you can support taking land given to the people of Benton Harbor to build a golf course accessible only to the rich.
This is worse than the Boston eminent domain case. It is class warfare against the poor. The donors of that land clearly intended otherwise. They must be writhing in their graves. What does this do to the practice of charitable giving land for public use 'in perpetuity?' Will those few wealthy persons who donate land to the public be discouraged from doing so?
Republicans REPRESENT the wealthy class, but when Democrats sell out is it surprising that many folks simply don't show up at the polls?
